Hi Chicago 'hounds,
So I'm making an impromptu visit to your fair city next month, and I'd like some input on my dining plans. I generally come to Chicago once a year (usually in June) and am interested primarily in fine dining experiences (I have eaten at Alinea twice and would go back, but it happens that the 21st Century Limited is on during my visit and even if I could get tickets I've already eaten at EMP this year).
Right now I have dinner reservations booked at Topolobampo, Goosefoot, and Schwa. My questions are:
1. Should I keep the Topolo reservation, or look at something else? I'm strongly considering Bonsoiree as an alternative.
2. What about a backup plan for Schwa? I'm thinking maybe MK, but do you think it's possible to get reservations at Sixteen or L2O at the last minute? Or maybe Moto? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
